A Classroom Computer to Allow Students to Work on IEP Goals

My students need access to a computer to be able to accomplish their IEP goals.

  • $375 goal

This project expired on February 4, 2013.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students' IEP goals call for a computer. However, my classroom does not have computers. I want to be able to give them the opportunity to access a computer, to complete their IEP goals, and to research places for their post-secondary education and employment.

My students are a group of 14-18 year old boys who have been diagnosed with Autism or Cognitive Impairments.

They are extremely sweet and are always hard at work. They all have different career aspirations: from a doctor to a computer engineer. I want them to be able to complete their IEP goals that call for a computer and allow them to research their future careers.

My Project

A laptop will allow my students to become more tech-savvy in this ever-increasing technological world. It will allow them to compose pieces of writing for publication, give them access to educational games, and allow them to research their future careers.

A computer really changes the classroom dynamics.

It gives students access to technology that they can use in the real world. A computer would also allow my students to be creative in their writing and be more apt to write freely.
